Bit of history nb for a totally different kind of work about an earlier time in America I do also ike Golden Hill And it seems His Substitute Bride (Seavers Brides, like the historical periods she chooses would be aittle harder to research everyday Tu Alma ¿La Conoces? living details for unlike eg the Regency Not that I don tove the Regency but it s nice to sink into a Krahn book whether it s Medieval or VictorianI also J.M. Coetzee like her characters who are strong and unlike heroines of other romance novels and are even very unlike each other The heroes areikewise strong without being paper cut outs They have work to do too maybe even than the heroines themselves But the character arcs are typically eually weighted in Krahn novels which Feminization and Chastity Training for the Sissy Husband (The League of Dominant Women leads to that satisfying feeling that they really have earned each other Did the book slow down a bit in the third uarter I m not sure For one I was findingess time to read so it took me The Club of Angels longer to read through for external reasons But it might have been aittle slow because she had to introduce the urban setting and create a new source of tension to Blue Skies and Gunfire lead to the climax of the whole In any case it didn t bother me I ratheriked it actually since the rocky time following the marriage further Forced Feminization (The League of Dominant Women leads to the impression that they really had to earn their happy ending that the wedding didn t magically solve all their problems Iike books that continue into Act 6 when there s a good reason for it and in this book there is Wow This was a great book I don t usually write reviews but I just had to on this one I am shocked by the negative reviews People get so offended by everything in this day and age I hate to burst anyone s bubble but things happened this way back then Women didn t have any rights most were not independent and I m sure near rape and rape itself happened all the time Read modern romance if you can t handle it Author s just don t write this way any Modern historical romances and so watered down and boring Majority are written in regency Every story s the same There s no substance This book was typical of it s time Very 새로 만든 먼나라 이웃나라 12 - 미국 3 long and very informative Author s did their homework then All the characters were great Yes the hero spends 70% of the book being a major ass but he than makes up for it Obviously by the time we meet his family we know why he is the way he is The heroine is one of my favorites of all the books I ve read and believe me there are many The secondary characters were well written too I have high expectations with books This one met all of them Iaughed I smiled and I even cried at times This was definitely a great read It is so bad for some reason everyone in this town is a half wit and talks with what i suppose is backwoodsy accent one expects some stereotypical characters but this is over the top if i had found even one of the characters ikable i might have plodded on but since i cant tolerate either the hero or herione i have to say its doubtful i will ever finish this i recommend this only as a form of torture.
